Superfood Tabs, previously called Skinny Tabs, is a tablet superfood supplement! Unlike other powdered supplements that I typically review, this formula sits in a tablet that weighs just over 400mg.
However, the brand claims that just one Superfood Tab and you’ve consumed 15 superfoods.
Since being released to the world in 2018, the tablets have become increasingly popular in the weight loss world, and during this time the product has collected over 9,000+ customer reviews!
Curious as to whether these tablets can actually help you lose weight or if they’re just a fake marketing ploy, I’m keen to take a closer look at Superfood Tabs and see what they’re made of.
If you’re thinking about purchasing these tablets or you’re keen to take a closer look too and figure out if they’re legit or packed with lies, check out my full Superfood Tabs review below.
Superfood Tabs First Impressions
Straight away, I feel wary of the brand. Although the product page (on superfoodscompany.com or skinnytabs.com) is bright and vibrant, it’s also very pushy and in your face. As soon as I’m hit with the words ‘fizz, drink, drop pant sizes’ I’m put off the product.
Although I love a good amount of information on a product page, this is intense! There’s information everywhere, spliced together with ‘buy now’ buttons and rave customer reviews, and it goes on and on and on!
Looking at the product, I’m still feeling wary – I’m honestly very unsure how a tablet that dissolves can be the key to losing weight within weeks.
I’m very much looking forward to taking a closer look at this formula to see if it really is unrealistic, or if I’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Background on Skinny Tabs/Superfood Company
Based in Austin, Texas, Superfood Tabs were up until recently produced by the company Skinny Tabs. However, after several complaints and the lowest score possible being associated with the company on the Better Business Bureau, the company has now changed names, to Superfood Company.
This is a real concern and suggests that rather than properly dealing with the company issues, the company decided to just rebrand and hope for the best!
Overall, the company isn’t really a trusted one, which makes buying a product from them very difficult to encourage.
Superfood Tabs Benefits
The brand states that the Superfood Tabs are specifically formulated to help the consumer lose weight, which is the main purpose of them!
The tabs are supposed to do this by boosting energy levels, reducing cravings, improving the metabolism, and improving the digestion system.
The brand actually provides information about each individual ingredient within the tabs too, giving information about the health benefits that derive from each ingredient – this is a nice touch!
For example, “Wheatgrass promotes a healthy digestive system. Boosts your metabolism and helps lower bad cholesterol”.
Superfood Tabs Ingredients
The Superfood Tabs formula contains more than 15 potent ingredients, including fruits, vegetables, herbal extracts, and algae!
Unfortautnely though, all of the ingredients exist within a proprietary blend, meaning the efficacy of the formula is incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to figure out.
Nonetheless, more about that later on in the review. First, let’s take a look at the ingredients within the tabs!
- Proprietary Blend (400mg) – Elderberry Extract, Beet Root, Green Tea Leaf Extract (40 Mg Caffeine), Matcha Tea Leaf (Camilia Sinensis), Burdock Root 4:1 Extract, Ginger Root 5:1 Extract, Dandelion 5:1 Extract (Whole Plant), Lemon Balm 4:1 Extract (Aerial Parts), Milk Thistle Seed Extract, Asian Ginseng Root, Lycium (Goji) Berry Fruit 5:1 Extract, Pomegranate Fruit, Aloe Vera Inner Leaf Juice Powder, Wheat Grass, Chlorella Algae.
- Other Ingredients – Citric Acid, Natural Flavors, L-leucine, Rebaudioside A, Hydroxypropyl Cellulose, Silica, and Magnesium Stearate.
Here is the supplement facts label:
How does Supefood Tabs Taste?
The Superfood tabs are flavored and sweetened so that they have a berry flavor, and the reviews concerning the taste of the formula are very positive!
However, the downside is that people say the tabs can take up to 15 minutes to become fully dissolved, which isn’t ideal if you’re wanting a quick superfood fix!
The brand warns that pregnant or nursing women, people under 18 years old, and those with medical conditions should consult a medical professional before consuming the tabs.
In addition, the brand also warns about the caffeine that exists within the tabs, saying that it may cause “insomnia, nervousness and restlessness, stomach irritation, nausea and vomiting, increased heart rate and respiration, and other side effects”.
Although obviously no one wants to experience these side effects, I do applaud the fact that the company has been transparent with potential side effects and added warnings.
Does Superfood Tabs Work?
Superfood Tabs does have some impressive ingredients, but unfortunately, all of these ingredients exist within a proprietary blend that only weighs 400mg.
This is a tiny, tiny serving, and immediately it’s clear to me that the ingredients within this formula are not sufficiently dosed.
For example, some of the ingredients within the formula have much higher standard recommended doses than the amount of the entire blend.
For example, the recommended dose of wheatgrass is 3g, the recommended dose of chlorella is 2g, and the recommended dose of milk thistle extract is 420mg.
Therefore, it’s obvious that with an entire blend totaling 400mg, the ingredients within the blend are not sufficiently dosed. Therefore, the formula may not provide the benefits that the brand claims it will.
Superfood Tabs Reviews
Superfood Tabs are sold on Amazon and there are over 4,500 customer reviews on there – clearly, this product has been popular since launching!
Overall, the formula has been awarded 4 stars out of 5 stars by customer reviews.
However, it’s useful to take a look at a range of individual reviews, rather than just the overall rating. So, let’s take a look at a selection of product reviews!
I am so happy I found this product!! I used to have really bad stomach problems and always felt bloated. Now, I drink it every morning and feel amazing!! My stomach has never been flatter and I’m down a full pant size! I also love the taste, and it makes me drink more water so I’m always hydrated. I will definitely be a lifetime customer!! Thank you Skinnytabs. 5-star reviewer
Ok, so I am still hopeful about this product. I am 3 days in, and I can’t say that it has curbed my appetite, however, I will say that it makes me go to the bathroom more often, so I guess it really does release toxins. One thing that I really do not like is that the tablets take forever to dissolve! At least 10-15 min. So it’s definitely not something you can drink right away. Also, the taste is very bland, but it is drinkable.
This product does NOT work. Gave me massive migraines and did not decrease my cravings. If anything, it INCREASED them! Total waste of (a ton of) money. Extremely dissatisfied! And, they delete any bad comments or reactions on Facebook, so pretty deceptive company as a whole! 1-star reviewer
Money-Back Guarantee / Returns Policy
The company does have a 30-day money-back guarantee, but there are lots and lots of regulations and rules that you have to adhere to in order to quality for a refund.
In addition, this refund only applies to people that purchase the tabs on a one-time purchase.
Where to buy Superfood Tabs?
Is It Worth The Price?
The Superfood Tabs are sold in different packs, including the ‘Starter’ pack that contains 30 servings, the ‘Kickstart’ pack that contains 60 servings, and the ‘Ultimate’ pack that contains 90 servings.
You can either choose to purchase these packs on a one-time purchase or on a subscription. The brand clearly encourages people to sign up for a subscription by providing savings between 36% – 58%.
However, apparently, subscription options are very difficult to cancel once signed up!
Anyway, let’s take a look at the different prices of the tabs.
The 30 servings pack costs $79.95 on a one-time purchase, working out at a cost per serving of $2.67.
On a subscription option, the same pack costs $54.95, meaning the cost per serving is $1.83.
The pack that contains 90 servings costs $169.95 on a one-time purchase working out at a cost per serving of $1.88.
This pack on a subscription costs $119.85, meaning the cost per serving works out at $1.33.
Obviously, the subscription option offers a significant saving. However, regardless of which pack you choose to purchase or whether you choose to buy a pack on a one-time purchase on not, these tabs are incredibly expensive!
The tabs are highly unlikely to actually provide the consumer with benefits, and the company seems sneaky and shady, so these tabs are certainly not worth this price in my opinion.
You can buy a really high-quality superfood formula for these kinds of prices, so these tabs just aren’t worth it for me!
The Bottom Line
I’ll cut straight to the chase here – I would not buy, and would not recommend buying Superfood Tabs. If you’re looking to lose weight, you need to be mindful of the food that you’re putting in your body and you need to exercise.
Taking a tablet per day of underdosed superfood ingredients will not provide you with the results that you’re looking for.
In addition, the insanely small 400mg proprietary blend within this formula doesn’t contain sufficiently dosed ingredients, and therefore it’s almost pointless to take these tablets for nutritional intake too!
My opinion is to look elsewhere!
If you’re looking for the benefits of nutritional superfoods, you have to choose a good quality superfood formula, not a tablet that contains a blend of 15 ingredients and equals 400mg!
LifeHacker Guy Greens Recommendation
Please give me a few moments to shamelessly introduce my brand, SuperGreen TONIK.
I have researched a lot (and I mean a lot) of super greens out there but was disappointed with most of the ones I tried.
So, I went out and created my own with the help of a USA manufacturer because I wanted to ensure I got all my veggie goodness in the right amounts, and of course within a no-fuss single serving each day.
None of the other brands offered that.
Its the best out there (of course I would say that about my own), but let me tell you why...
- No hidden ingredient amounts - we have full disclosure labelling, so you know EXACTLY whats inside
- Sufficient ingredient amounts to make a difference - we include at least (if not more of) the minimum effective amounts supported by research
- Ingredients that also could boost mental clarity and shake off brain fog - to boost my at work and home
After many months I finally got a greens formula that fuels my body and mind for the day ahead.
But please dont JUST take my word for it, make up your own decision by checking out my review. (I TRY BE BE AS UNBIASED AS POSSIBLE )
